(gee boss) Photographer is comic relief and couldn't pour urine out of a boot with directions stamped on the heel, but it's a good flick. Enjoyable if not corny..

It's not top-notch, but it was great movie. The photographer is pretty funny and all the actors were perfectly casted. I would give 3.5 stars if I could; well done.

Subject: Not that bad
There is a wide range of opinios on this one.
For this collection it is a very good movie.
You can certainly do a lot worse.
The print quality is very good and the movie itself has some substance.

Subject: Step by Step
Bank Alarm is a pretty straightforward, pull no punches actioner that pits a married (nice!) couple of a G-Man and (yes) G-Woman, against a counterfeit money ring. The bad guys you see, popped the counterfeiter of the money they are planning to distribute. (thanks to the descriptions of 5! Count em! 5! Newspaper headlines we get to see), The G-People, as I like to call them, methodically step by step, follow the pieces of the puzzle until the end until itÂs somewhat predictably conclusion. Actually, this is so straightforward, thereÂs hardly any suspense happening, But still, it does have itÂs moments, but I could have done away with the lame comedy bits provided by Vince Barnett.

Subject: Criminal Crime Drama
The best thing about this picture is that it is an excellent print and in super shape. Otherwise it's a routine crime programmer, maybe a little more idiotic than most. The "comedy" of Vince Barnett, or the lack of it brings this film down drastically, as well. Conrad Nagel, and Wheeler Oakman turn in professional performances as usual, but the rest of the cast leaves a lot to be desired. 'Nuff said.
